Gandhinagar : Union Home Minister Amit Shah, during his Gujarat visit, on Sunday inaugurated the Nadabet International Border Point located in Banaskatha district of the state. The border structured by the Gujarat State Tourism Board has been designed as a tourist destination. This place will also mark the first border viewing point of Gujarat. There will also be a photo gallery and armed tanks on display.

According to information, a key difference from the Indo-Pak Wagah border in Punjab would be that the Pakistani side would not participate in the demonstrations, with the BSF (Border Security Force) representing the Indian forces. Nadabet is located 20 to 25 km from the actual Pakistan border. “The project has been set up by Gujarat Tourism at Sui village near Nadabet in Banaskantha district at a cost of Rs 125 crore.

Alok Kumar Pandey, MD, Gujarat State Tourism said, “A special building has been prepared here, in which all kinds of information related to the history of Gujarat has been stored.” Pandey described the idea as important for the youth who want to join the BSF or the Indian Army. A museum on the approach displays vehicles and aircraft used by the armed forces, including MiG-27 fighter jets, and various columns of the BSF.
